Team,

The trainers have met, and unanimously agreed to the below standards for this next season of the TH. Each trainer will be working between now and Dec 1 to get their new specific guides up. They will also be holding training halls with their classes to get feedback and collaboration. The below will be the base from which they can be built but can only exceed where stated.

Please keep an eye on key dates:


Summary of recommended changes are as followed:
  1. Armour - no longer limiting people to call a set one class trait line. It can now be 6 pieces from any within that set group.
  2. Virtues - we are effectively lowering the needed ranks (i know it looks like we are increasing it, but we really aren't). It used to be 60 for Apt, 120 for Exc and 180 for renown. This was based on the old caps of 12, which sort of translated as 5 at max for Apt, 10 at max for Exc, and 15 at max for Renown. We are now making this 6, 9, 12 - increasing Apt slightly and lowering the other two. See below for details.
  3. Giving Renown a "Custom Program." We want to design a customer program for Renown applicants. Designed by one raid leader and the trainer, the applicant would complete that program to obtain their medal. This replaces feat requirements for Renown medals. The idea here is that different players have strengths/opportunities and this allows for custom program (can be a few things to accomplish or do an can be solo type stuff or group type stuff). The idea is to help round out player, get a few perspectives, and also keep pushing ourselves.
As a note - Burg Tools and Champ Runes have increased their incoming healing stat effectively


Armour Sets

A set = 6 pieces, but instead can be any 6 within a set group.

Set Groups:
  • Level 85 Crafted (non-raid) - total possible 6 pieces/1 set
  • Hytbold (non-raid) - total possible 18 pieces/3 sets (ToO sets may be considered we are still evaluating - Draigoch will not)
  • Moors (raid) - 85 - total possible 18 pieces/3 sets - considered a raid set

Aptitude

KP = 150
  • Must have played your class for one month at 85
  • Player has a good understanding of how to play the class, has demonstrated effective playing, and has achieved good statistics that assist in group or solo play.
  • Player can take direction to use the right skills at the right time
  • Armour: 1 set (and is allowed to be non-raid, trainer may specify non-raid set bonuses)
  • All Class, Race, and Legendary Traits earned
  • Virtues: 100 Ranks in virtues (trainer may require certain ranks in certain virtues)
  • A Legendary Weapon 3rd Age 85, and a Class Item 3rd Age level 85 (Trainer may allow 1st Age 75 Class item). Trainer may specify legacies.

Excellence

KP = 300
  • Must have played your class for two months at 85
  • Player has a excellent understanding of how to play the class, has demonstrated outstanding playing, and has achieved excellent statistics that assist in group or solo play.
  • Player needs little direction, and knows what their role/execution/process should be based on how the mechanics of an encounter are working and how their success connects to the groups'.
  • Armour: 2 sets (both are allowed to be non-raid, trainer may specify non-raid set bonuses)
  • All Class, Race, and Legendary Traits earned
  • Virtues: 150 Ranks in virtues (trainer may require certain ranks in certain virtues)
  • A Legendary Weapon 2nd Age 85, and a Class Item 2nd Age level 85 Trainer may specify legacies.

Renown

  • Must have played your class for three months at 85
  • Player has a near perfect understanding of how to play the class, has demonstrated superb playing, and has achieved statistics that are near or are the best for which the game currently allows.
  • Model for other players and helps drive new ways in using the class.
  • Armour: 4 sets (2 must be raid sets, trainer may specify set bonuses)
  • All Class, Race, and Legendary Traits earned
  • Virtues: 200 Ranks in virtues (trainer may require certain ranks in certain virtues)
  • A Legendary Weapon 1st Age 85, and a Class Item 1st Age level 85 Trainer may specify legacies.

As always, you will set your stats, legacies and any non-renown feats you desire or other items to bring. The above are the general guides that everyone must use. Only 3 changes, 2 of which were requested from players throughout the year, and our effort to make things less grindy.

Dates


We are aiming toward following dates
  • Nov 1, 2012 - last day to earn medals on old requirements
  • Dec 1, 2012 - first day to earn medals on new requirements - and date that trainers must have guides posted (Py will work with you if you have not done this before)
  • Jan 1, 2013 - Medals reset

Mounted Combat

As several trainers recommended, we will have Mounted Combat requirements, but not at this time. We will evaluate and add those into the general guidelines at the next full update (Update 9). When this happens, it will follow similar style above with bridle and trait lines and we'll give any medals earners time to prepare for that change if coming. Not going to do anything with it at this point though bc it's not clear what long term approach is and how it will work altogether with groups and group play.

Hello team,

The trainers met last night after our first month or RoR. The timeline for the new medal requirements remains the same as does the expiration of your current medals.

We did go over three topics:
1. ToO set - voted that we would not count these as a set going forward. Trainers have reviewed the sets and compared them to Hytbold and there is not a sufficient reason to keep them as a set for the new requirements
2. PvP set - We discussed whether this should coulnt still as a raid set. It was agreed that it should based on several good points.
3. Bridles - The team still deferred to requiring bridles for medals. We will wait to see what the next content looks like. There is presently no content and strong reason the team is feeling where this adds a lot of benefit.

Your trainers will be setting up THs for you to contribute and collaborate on RoR requirements. Dec 1, you will be  able to apply for new medals. Watch the calendar!

Team,

Medals are now open to be re-earned. Any non-level 85 medal previously earned will be reset (removed) from players on Jan 1. During the month of Dec, you may reach out to your trainer to medal. Guides should be updated. Ask trainers if you have questions or you may contact Tollers.

Note - these are trainers' first pass. And in some cases, a trainer's first time doing these guides. This role is very time intensive and also very much appreciated when fulfilled. Please be collaborative if you have feedback.

Specially Note - Stats/Req are always subject to change. Trainers may increase/modify stats when new Updates come out. If they do this and you have already earned a medal, then you will need to meet the new requirements within a month.

If you plan to work toward a medal, then please let the trainer know so that they can give you feedback. Thank you.

Medals have been reset other than those that were earned again in Dec 2012. If you are a trainer who submitted a medal for a player and it is not on the KP page, then please resubmit it as it would be now lost.
